It's An Honor. And A Huge Surprise.
While I was clicking through the comments on the last post, I saw that Domestic Accident (girl! what's shaking?!) congratulated me on my nomination for a Catholic New Media Award.
I immediately started cracking up, because I am a loon. And because these awards are for The Big Name Catholic Bloggers. Surely she was yanking my chain or, at the very least, mistaken.
Rob heard me giggling, and came to see what was so funny. He probably thought I was watching something fun on Hulu without him.
I pointed to the monitor, and he said, "Well let's look it up!"
So we did. And I am indeed nominated. In more than one category even. To say I am surprised would be an understatement of major proportions.
Let me put it this way: I am so shocked, that when I saw other Catholic blogs promoting their nominations, it didn't even occur to me to check the list of nominees because why on earth would I be there?
I am an over-confident whelp, I am.
To the reader (or readers) out there who nominated me, I very humbly say thank you. I mean it most sincerely and truly. I am honored that you thought enough of this blog to nominate it, among such big names in the Catholic blog world such as Conversion Diary, Faith & Family Live!, and Creative Minority Report.
I am nominated for Best Blog by a Woman and Best Written Blog. Gulp.
If you would care to vote for me, click here. You need to register to vote, but registering is free, with no strings attached.
As always, I thank you for your support.
(And I just stole that from a Bartles and Jaymes wine cooler commercial, circa 1985. See why I never thought I'd be on the list of blogs nominated 'Best Written'?)
